Central heating installation and heating system tips
The unusually cold weather we’re currently experiencing in the UK is starting to play havoc with boilers throughout the area. Many of us are waking up to find that we have no heating or hot water on a freezing cold morning. If this is you, you may find that your boiler is flashing up an error message on its screen, making strange gurgling noises and just not come on at all.
Typically, not much stops a boiler’s condensation freezing over, but in the most extreme weather if can often be difficult to prevent, even if your boiler is performing at 100%.
What is a condensing pipe?
Typically, condensing pipes are small pipes on or near an external wall, usually about 4cm in diameter, which connect to your boiler. They’re often white and plastic. If they freeze then the condensate pipe will build up and then back up into the boiler – which will prevent it from working.
At Bright Gas we ensure they all condensing pipes are fitted internally where possible, if it’s not we run the shortest steepest route to the nearest drain.
Why does my condensing pipe freeze?
The water dripping through the pipe can freeze in cold weather, preventing it from draining away. When this happens, the boiler will shut down. To fix the problem the frozen water needs to be cleared.
So, what do I do when my condensing pipe has frozen?
You may have seen many people online suggesting pouring boiling water on a frozen condensation pipe, but whatever you do PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS! Pouring boiling water over your boiler condensing pipe often leads to damaged pipes and create a bigger problem than before. It’s really important to contact a professional Gas Safe registered engineer to defreeze a condensation pipe.
How can I prevent my condensing pipe freezing?
If you’re concerned about your condensing pipe potentially freezing over then at Bright Gas we do have ways to protect your pipes. At Bright Gas we can provide you with a quote to upgrade your condense pipe to a larger diameter and completely insulate it or where possible, have it rerouted internally where possible.
Unfortunately, a lot of boiler engineers have installed condensing pipes so they are on the outside of the property, which in very cold weather causes them to freeze and block the condensing pipe.
If you’re struggling with a frozen condensing pipe, then call Bright Gas today and our team will advise you on what to do next or advise you on how to prevent it from happening again. Call 01924 631177 to talk to our friendly team today!
As you’ll be aware, whenever the government has decided to introduce new legislation it has the potential to cause a period of upheaval.
The recently introduced Boiler Plus legislation is due to impact all homeowners who have or need a boiler, so it’s important that you understand what all this talk of new rules means for you.
Boiler Plus: What you need to know
Boiler Plus is new legislation that is due to be launched by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy; it is designed to encourage energy efficiency, which is meant to help us use less energy and lower our carbon emissions.
The notable point for all households is that this policy will require a new minimum performance for domestic gas boilers. This means that, potentially, your current boiler will need to be replaced with haste.
The minimum performance standard for all domestic boilers will be 92% ErP. The aim of the ErP directive is to remove inefficient products from homes to reduce carbon emissions Europe-wide.
In addition to affecting many homeowners, the legislation will also require all those fitting new combination boilers to include one of the following systems anywhere that they are installing a boiler:

Old, inefficient boilers cost a fortune to run; you’re essentially pouring money down the drain. Why do you need to upgrade your boiler?

The older the boiler, the higher the bills: When your boiler is well past it’s heyday, it starts to cost a fortune to run. Although your home isn’t adequately heated, you still end up paying significant amounts to attempt heating your home.
If you’re aware that your boiler is no longer pulling its weight, and you’re considering purchasing a new boiler soon, use our quote calculator today. The calculator will accurately tell you how much your new boiler is likely to cost.
Remember: if you think your boiler is on its way out, replace it before the new legislation comes in; you don’t want to have to pay a fortune because you left it too late!

Batley Boiler problems to look out for
Your boiler makes strange noises: If your boiler heating up sounds like a grumbling zombie from a horror movie, there’s definitely a problem.

Although it’s not guaranteed that you’re going to need a new boiler, it’s vital that you get somebody to look into the issue to ensure that you’re safe with your current one.
Your fuel bills are excessive – and increasing: Heat bills are expensive, and they’re only going to increase when you have a problematic boiler.
As a boiler ages, it gradually becomes more difficult – and expensive – to run; you can end up paying an eye-watering amount of money for the energy that you have to heat your home with.
Switching to an energy-efficient boiler can end up saving you 30% on your energy bills, a hugely significant amount of money that you could be spending on other elements of your lifestyle.
Your property is never heated, no matter how long the heating is on: If your heater is old and ineffective you’ll likely notice that your home never seems to heat up no matter how long you have the heating on for.
An ageing system can render your radiators useless, meaning they’ll be incapable of heating a home eventually.
With a hopeless boiler and inoperable radiators, you’re going to be paying for energy that you aren’t actually getting, so it’s important that you invest in a new boiler as soon as possible.

Often boiler and central heating systems often go hand in hand, to create the most effective and energy efficient system, saving you both time and money. There comes a time when a new boiler is an essential and there’s no getting around it. However, the question we get asked all the time is ‘How much will a new gas boiler cost me?’
We often have this question and while no install is the same we can often give you a very accurate guide price with a few questions and assessing your current boiler set up.
What type of boiler do you want to install?
One of the biggest cost factors involved when installing a new boiler will depend on the size and type of boiler you require, and the installation company you use. Typically, new boilers cost between £1000 – £2300. However, the most important thing is finding a boiler that suits both you and your home.
In today’s market the biggest seller and most popular type of boiler is the combi boiler. A combi boiler heats water directly from the mains, allowing a constant supply of hot water and alleviating the need for a separate water tank.
They are one of the most efficient types of boiler as they will only heat water on demand.
However, just as there are many different types of homes, so there are many different types of boiler; including conventional, system and back boilers.
How much is a new boiler?
Boiler prices vary considerably as a result of build qualities and levels of after-sales support. As a general rule, budget boilers offer shorter life spans, shorter warranties and reduced levels of customer support. Whilst they are cheap to install they tend to be expensive to maintain and less efficient to run.
As a general guide the lower down the pricing range you go then the lower the warranty and guarantee period on your new boiler would be. A typical lower priced boiler comes come with a 2 year parts and labour warranty whereas a top of the range boiler often 10 year warranty, which is a massive difference and the price isn’t necessarily that much more expensive – especially when you think your boiler may be covered for an additional 8 years.
Here’s our quick pricing guide:
Budget-friendly boiler prices – a typical like for like boiler such as a Ravenheat or a Vokera fitted in 3 bedroom semi would cost from £1100 to £1300 with a 2 to 5 year parts and labour warranty.
Mid-range boiler prices – a typical mid-range like for like boiler such as an Ideal, Logic or a Glow Worm fitted in a 3-bedroom semi would cost from £1350 to £1750 with a 5 to 7 year parts and labour warranty.
